Q. How do I cite a source from a mobile application?


To cite a source from a mobile app:

  • When doing any sort of citation, make sure to give the reader enough information to find the source cited on the References Page.  
  • The device or app is not important, it is the content and where you found the content.

For how to do citations, view the APA Help Guide under References & In-text Citation Examples.

  • Therefore, if you are citing a newspaper article on your phone, you will still cite the article as a newspaper article that you got from either a website or one of Baker College's databases.
  • You will still use the same formula you would use for any other APA citation.
